KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Three suspects have been arrested in connection with a missile attack on a sensitive area of the capital, an official said on Tuesday.

Nasrat Rahimi, spokesman for the Ministry of Interior, told Pajhwok Afghan News an hour after the incident, three suspects were arrested by police on Monday night.

Rahimi did not disclose the identities of the detainees, saying further information would be shared with the media later on.

The attack happened at around 8:10pm. One of the rockets struck street 14 of the Wazir Akbar Khan diplomatic quarter.

The Indian embassy building was struck and damaged by a second rocket, which did not cause injuries, he said. An investigation is ongoing to determine where the rockets were fired from.
